The couple has recruited the help of Jason Adcock of Adcock Prestige, who recently hinted on social media; “Top Riverfront Trophy Home of 2021 Coming Soon”.

The Pullars bought the five-bedroom house on 6000sqm of land in 2007 at auction for $6.1m, but are hoping to sell it for more than $10 million.

 

The property has an amazing infinity pool overlooking the river.

Brisbane’s current residential auction record is $9.91 million, which was set by the sale of a riverfront block of land at 39 Griffith St, New Farm, in December 2020.

“We bought Jilba Street in the last boom and paid a record price for it, which didn’t play into our thinking and the current boom didn’t play into our thinking either,” Mrs Pullar said.

“I’ve been wanting to sell for a couple of years, the kids left home early and we’ve been home alone. I threw myself into Adrift, but we can’t just work, we have to have a plan for the last third of our lives because the kids aren’t coming back. And the beginning of the plan is we have to sell this house.”

A former lawyer, Pullar started the resort-wear fashion brand, Adrift, in the garage of Jilba Street in 2012.

 

 

The home has plenty of outdoor entertaining areas to soak up the river views.

“I would pack the orders at home after school and get the kids to help, then we’d take them down to the Indooroopilly Post Office with little notes on them.”

Her business has now expanded beyond online to supply all David Jones stores in Australia and New Zealand.

 

Owner Rebecca Pullar started the fashion label, Adrift, from the home’s garage in 2012.

“We both had houses before we got married and we pooled our money and built a child care centre in Kuraby. That was the start of things,” she said.
